Recorded on a Tascam Porta 2 four track cassette machine and released on cassette in 1989 on the Preference label.

"LOVE SONGS FOR LAUGHS is a wonderful cassette. I had no idea what to expect. It's a tremendous feeling when you get something blindly and it's far better than anything you could have imagined. Thank you for your touching music." Listener's letter, 1990

"A couple of months ago I ordered one of your tapes, LOVE SONGS FOR LAUGHS and I fell in love with it. Your songs seem to speak to me personally, like a close friend would. That may sound kind of corny but it's true." Listener's letter, 1990

"I'm listening to LOVE SONGS right now and I just love 'This Reminds Me'. Beautiful. Very." Listener's letter 1990
